nice. i love old fujis.
My Bottecchia, love riding this bike. Pedals are off because I haven't bought a second set of clipless for my fixed gear yet.
I lusted after one of those as a young man. Very nice.
~1990 scapin w/c-record, 1997 moots w/(mostly) chorus, and 2007 time w/(mostly) red.

1994 Specialized Allez Pro w/ full Shimano 600
And the fixed gear and Allez together for comparison
Lousy about taking photos but my rides include the following:
Duracycle FG converted to SRAM P5
Trek 950 MTB with Nuvinci Hub
Kona Humu cruiser converted to Sturmey Archer S5-2 Alloy hub
Steelwool Tweed with Alfine IGH
Civia Hyland Rohloff
All the above are IGH bikes which share with SS/FG in only having 1 chainring and 1 rear cog. Also no forum for them. Note too that two are IGH conversions from SS and FG bikes.
Approximately 1984 Colnago SL with Super Record
Surly Big Dummy
A S3X wheelset on order along with a Mercier Kilo OS bike so I should shortly have a bike which can be run SS, FG and 3 speed FG with minimal change time between configurations.
Gear Hubs Owned: Rohloff disc brake, SRAM iM9 disc brake, SRAM P5 freewheel, Sachs Torpedo 3 speed freewheel, NuVinci CVT, Shimano Alfine SG S-501, Sturmey Archer S5-2 Alloy. Other: 83 Colnago Super Record, Univega Via De Oro

No photo's as yet, but I ride an old 21-speed Giant cross bike which is solid but unremarkable and a three-speed mama-chari with a seat on the front for my son.
It's great to see some of the beautiful bikes here that people genuinely enjoy riding and look after. Too often when you ask people what bikes they ride the conversation degenerates into a p***ing contest.

I wish my Specialized looked as nice as some of the bikes in here, I hate the gray/mustard combo. But at least it rides well. I just bought the nashbar threaded carbon for to replace the alu direct drive fork(which will be replacing the hi-ten (possibly bent) POS fork on the fixed gear).
65er, do you have any recommendations for taping frames or forks, so as to protect the frame? I'm going to tape the original fork from the Allez when I switch it over because 1) I want to keep it from getting too dinged up and 2) the color will look goofy.
I've heard gaffer tape but don't really know where to pick it up and I don't want to buy online.
is that red GT an aggressor or a palomar? i used to have an aggressor but i sold it. remorse ever since.
oh, and that moots chorus is making my balls sweat.
here's my newest mod to the roadie:

I'm guessing a webcam pic.
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
2007 Waterford RS-22 with polished Reynolds 953 stainless steel frame.
1972 Schwinn P15-9 Paramount.
What's the weight of the Waterford?
Comfy. Fast. Took it on a 220km ride last weekend, doing a double century on it next weekend.
the new addition of course is the rack so i can hold the panniers.
